This English Toffee recipe was one that my Grandmother had handwritten in her Recipe Box that my Mother has passed on in our family cook book, "Never trust a skinny cook" I can remember as a kid the smell in the room as this was being made. And now, it always reminds me of my Grandmother. I hope you enjoy it as well.
